“The Artillery Man” Pedro Petrone is the best striker of the World during the 1920s, and is regarded as the greatest Uruguayan striker of all-time. He is one of the fastest footballer in his era , was timed in the hundred metres at 11 seconds, was noted for his aggressive, positional play and powerful shooting. Petrone is also one of the most prolific scorers in history of Uruguayan league. His performance for Uruguay was in the state of so impressive. But still, He was not in his prime in the 1930 world cup consenting Hector Castro to be a starter instead but he still won 2 times Olympic Game which was very close to World Cup tournament in that era. Petrone holds the record most topscorer in history of Copa America Game with 3 times.

These are some of his achievements:
Caps : 28 Games (27 Goals)
World Cup Participation : 1930 (1 Games)
Professional Score Record : 203 Goals/ 192 Games
Club Honours : 2 Times Uruguay Champions
International Honours : 2 Times Copa America Winners (1923, 1924)
2 Times Olympic Game Gold Medal (1924, 1928)
1930 FIFA World Cup Winners
Individual Achievement : 1 Time Italian Series A Top Scorer
1924 Olympic Game Top Scorer
3 Times Copa America Top Scorer (1923, 1924, 1927)
1924 Copa America Best Player

Petrone was also very smart in positioning and together with enormous speed and power of his shots he surely was one of the best ever Urruguayan players. In his first training with Fiorentina Petrone smashed the ball towards the goal, the ball went over the crossbar and continued to fly till finally breaking the window on the old building located 300 meters from pitch. His shots often left opponents wounded, goalkeepers unconsious and the nets broken. But Petrone didn't train regularly in Italy, always coming late on training and eventually escaped to Uruguay after the argument with coach since in one game ha didn't want to listen his orders and move to play on right wing position. Pedro Petrone died on 13/12/1964 aged 59.

Giocatore completo, dalla tecnica elevata e con caratteristiche atletiche di grandissimo livello, si impone come uno dei primi attaccanti ad interpretare il ruolo in modo completo, amando anche uscire dall'area di rigore, soprattutto per armare il suo devastante tiro.
Fortissimo nel gioco aereo e velocissimo, segna 24 reti in 29 partite con la Nazionale e caterve di gol con la maglia del Nacional.
Gioca per due stagioni anche nella Fiorentina tra tanti problemi di natura caratteriale, che non gli impediscono di segnare 37 gol in 44 partite.

Stop the PSD copycats...
